and applause] this bold -- bold military action even surprised the french, whose president, francois hollande, is perceived as so indecisive and weak, he's earned the nickname "flanby," after a wobbly gelatin dessert. oh, burn! [cheers and applause] or as the french say, brulee!

and francois hollande being what they are, laland has labeled today's festival a festival of hypocrisy. what do you make of it? >> well, i mean, maybe that's overly cynical. certainly the relationship between the more conservative christian democrat angela merkel and the socialist francois hollande is less than cordial, less than warm hearted. they come from different sides of the political spectrum. but the bottom line is, we've had this over 50 years many times before. usually relationships between new french premieres and old german chancellors or the other way around are -- i wouldn't say frosty, but a little bit distant and then they grow with each other and at the end of the day, it's about business and not about warm-hearted relationships between politicians. and at the end of the day, push comes to shove, whether it's in paris or berlin, politicians and indeed the people involved have long decided if we want to survive in the global markets and not only in the markets, but in this global environment as europeans, then that is what we have to do. we have to do this together. and at the h
